One of the most western-like hostels in Taipei, with a great common room and friendly staff.

Place is clean, toilets have hot showers.

It is not too near the metro (15mins walking) but still manageable. Also, no elevators in the hostel, but apart from that everything was good. Would be nice if the hostel could organize some pub crawls/city tours etc.

The hostel is beautifully decorated with a lot of DIYs and research places for you to do your own research. Discussions boards ad table was also set. One good thing about this hostel is that they do provide a lock for you to lock your belongings to prevent it from being stolen.

Living with others means that you have to be prepared to stay with their living lifestyle. I came back to the hostel at 12am and the lights in my room were already off. Can't find all my clothings and have to bring my luggage out at the corridor to find my stuffs. Quite a bad experience for me. One of the traveller even came in at 4.30am in the morning.

Since it is a hostel, the walls weren't really strong as well. Even though the bathing facilities is few door away from us, we will get awake if someone is sleeping.

One major con, in my opinion, is that this hostel is located at the END of ximending it is recommended to cab there if youre carrying lots of stuffs. And there is no lifts. Meaning you have to carry your luggage all the way to the room. (and all the way down)

Room Tip: Request for a low level room if possible! Bring your own towels and toiletries!

Only good things to stay about this hostel in Taipei, and I have adventured through hostels in just about every major city in Europe! Ground floor has an open atmosphere with kitchen, tables, foosball, etc. which encourages people to branch out, make friends and mingle. Staff is very friendly and will usually hang out after they finish their shifts and sometimes lead you on adventures throughout the city as well. Humidity can be killer so make sure you turn on your AC when you get home for the day as they shut it off for the afternoons.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of heavy bags request a floor on a lower room - they don't have an elevator. O...

One of the nicest hostels I've been to, certainly the best in Taiwan. Even though the price is a bit above average, what you get is well worth it. The staff is extremely friendly and the common area is super stylish and big including a dart machine and table soccer. The hostel is located right next to Ximen district a 5-10 minutes walk from the subway station. Showers and rooms are very clean and shampoo and body wash are provided.

I was actually expecting to have a bad experience since it was my first time to stay in a hostel. Fortunately, I had a great experience. The room, the people, the location they are all great! I'd definitely come back to this place.

1.There is no elevator, my friends and me had to brought our backpack to 6/f on foot

2. the corridor is quite hot, maybe because our late arrivel

3. The mixed dorm room also hot and we can't adjust the temperature of air conditioner

4.common area is big, but the chair and table is not enough, they're only provide three 8ppl-table in the common area

Caution!!
The ground of 6/f common shower room(I don't know other floor's) is black color, water can clearly showing the reflection of other room, it is a bad design
